White Winter Hymnal

Busy, busy, busy!  In the past month, I’ve gone on vacation, and 4 work trips!  C’mon!  And now it’s nearly Thanksgiving, which means…  103.7FM needs to start playing Christmas music!

Among the busyness and the impending holidays, I’ve got the urge to purge, simplify, and clean stuff up.  I’ve been gradually cleaning out my closet, recycling magazines, but there are some pieces in my apartment that I’d like to add as I’ve made room.  Everything I look for and am drawn to is white and clean!  I have my eye on some Billy bookcases from Ikea.

I haven’t been much of an Ikea shopper in the past, but I’m afraid if I save up for some nicer ones, they’ll be gone by the time I have the cash!  Plus, what I’m really interested in is doors!  I love cabinetry and I love glass doors–I want them in my kitchen and I want them on my bookcases.  Not only do I love the look, but it also means a lot less dusting!  Just more fingerprints…wait a minute…

The fun thing about these too, is that it would be very easy to add a wallcovering to the back panel (since it’s a separate piece when you assemble it)!  Not sure how crazy to go with that yet since the books will add lots of color and texture.

The other thing I’ve had my eye on is from Nate Berkus’ new line for Target.  I saw it in the store and my eyes grew wide with excitement.

In the store they had a deep green and a very pretty yellow and I thought, is this too nuts?  Will these colors go?  At $40, it was too big of a risk for an impulse purchase.  Then I went online and saw it in white–perfection!

It’s still a little nutty, but in a good way.  It’s a conversation starter.  Now I just need to paint a wall navy or purple or something really dark…

I just realized that I could have grouped this all into a “I’m dreaming of a White Christmas…” kind of thing…  Hmm…
